President Joe Biden’s deputies congratulate themselves for delivering foreign migrants into Americans’ workplaces, communities, and society without approval from Congress or debate with the worried voters.
“We’re increasing and improving legal migration,” Tyler Moran, a White House official, told the Washington Post. “We have put in place many policies creating legal pathways to migrate and seek protection, and we see that as a metric of success,” she added.
“We have a three-pronged approach,” Biden’s border chief, Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), told a Senate hearing on May 13. “Address the root causes [of migration], to build legal pathways [into the U.S.], and to advocate more with the hope that Congress will pass immigration reform,” he said.
Mayorkas is opening legal pathways into Americans’ workplaces and homes by widening the side doors in immigration law, such as parole admissions and asylum claims. He is also widening the doors to legalization by easing the award of green cards to illegal or unlawful migrants.
White House spokeswoman Pili Tobar worked in a variety of advocacy migration jobs before joining Biden’s administration. On May 7, she tweeted:
We had a plan from the beginning: move kids as fast as possible out of CBP to ORR and to the arms of vetted sponsors or family members. That plan is working. https://t.co/xgs7ZlgrbU

The vast majority of “vetted sponsors or family members” for supposedly unaccompanied children are illegally present in the United States. Many of those sponsors paid coyotes — and the cartels — to deliver their children or job-seeking teenage boys to U.S. agents on the border. Mayorkas’ agency is now completing the contracted delivery — gratis — of the young migrants to their U.S.-based illegal migrant relatives.
Mayorkas is declining to use a court decision that would allow him to stop the coyote-delivered entry of so-called “unaccompanied” youths and children into the United States.
The DHS secretary told the Senate in testimony that he wants to provide asylum approval to youths and children who have not even left their home country: “If we can, in fact, adjudicate [asylum] claims in the countries of origin, or truly safe places, then we will spare children the perilous journey north.” He added, “These are people, yearning to be free.”
In April, Mayorkas used optional Title 8 rules to allow roughly 60,000 people across the border, including roughly 35,000 people from distant places other than Mexico or Central America.
DHS does not repatriate migrants who try to sneak across the border, helping roughly 45,000 do so in April, often on their second or third attempts. Moreover, the very lax enforcement rules at DHS leave migrants with little fear of being deported. At least 11 million people are already living illegally in the United States.
Mayorkas uses the parole side door in immigration law to bring thousands of legally deported migrants back into the United States.
The DHS secretary is also drafting regulations that would dramatically raise the number of poor economic migrants who could use crime or domestic abuse claims to get U Visas or T Visas and then win the huge prize of U.S. citizenship.
He is also stripping away bureaucratic and regulatory curbs on the Fortune 500 hiring of foreign graduates for jobs needed by American graduates. In addition, he is backing a bill that would automatically award green cards to foreign migrants if they perform 10 years of work for U.S. companies.
As administration officials try to create new migration pipelines without approval by Congress or debate with the public, they are dismissing media coverage — and public criticism — of the migration wave as a distraction. Roughly 178,000 migrants were recorded arriving at the border, marking a 20-year record.
Why is President Biden Purposely Flooding the Nation with Illegal Aliens?
According to the Washington Post:
Rather than attempting to drive down migration through more stringent enforcement, Biden officials in recent weeks have been seeking to change the perception that high border numbers equate to a crisis, a failure, or even something manifestly negative.
“Apprehensions don’t tell the full story, and getting to zero is not a measure of success,” Tyler Moran, one of Biden’s top immigration policy advisers, said in an interview. She and other Biden officials have urged patience with their policies and plans to address the “root causes” driving Central American emigration, while blaming the Trump administration for handing them an immigration system with a myopic focus on keeping border numbers low.
“We’re moving toward a fair, orderly and humane system,” Moran added. “We’re increasing and improving legal migration, and deterring irregular migration. We have put in place a number of policies creating legal pathways to migrate and seek protection, and we see that as a metric of success.”
The “full story,” as described by Moran, does not include the economic damage – such as housing prices — done to native-born and immigrant Americans, the expanding poverty and regional gaps in U.S. society, or the damage done to migrants’ home countries by the left-wing policy of extracting migrants for use in the U.S. economy.
Republican legislators are pushing back, but usually with ineffective rhetoric about socialism, border chaos, or illegal migrants.
The rhetoric looks good on some conservative websites, and it avoids a clash with pro-migration business donors, who oppose any GOP talk about immigration, jobs, wages, and careers. For example, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) responded to Mayorkas’ May 13 hearing comments by pointing to the crush of migrants at the border:
What I find astonishing … is that we have the secretary responsible for securing our border and our immigration system, who doesn’t recognize these charts as being a problem … and is not saying “We’ve got to make some changes immediately.” I find that I find that extraordinary and extremely damning.

But some GOP politicians are cutting the heart of the issue.
“The open borders policy of Democrats is driving down the wages of millions of Americans,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Wednesday during a May 12 hearing for a Democrat amnesty bill. He continued:
The bill that we’re discussing in this hearing today is, I believe, a very dangerous bill. It is a radical bill that would grant amnesty to millions of people here illegally, with a broad swath that is wrong, immoral, and profoundly unfair.
It is unfair to millions of Americans — [to] low-income Americans, Americans who may be out of work, Americans who may be in difficult jobs.
Why is President Biden Purposely Flooding the Nation with Illegal Aliens?
The open borders policy of Democrats is driving down wages of millions of Americans [including] the African American community. This bill is terrible for the African American community. It lowers wages in the African American community. The Hispanic community: This bill is terrible for the Hispanic community. For legal immigrants: … this bill drives down wages for millions of legal immigrants.
Pro-American activists are sharpening their responses: “It is extraction immigration,” said Rob Law, the director of regulatory affairs and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies. He added:
At the end of the day, calling everybody north to the United States leaves these other countries with a desolated population and completely destroyed economy. It is cruelty on steroids. What they’re doing is callous. It is cruel and it’s immoral.
For many years, a wide variety of pollsters have shown deep and broad opposition to labor migration and the inflow of temporary contract workers into jobs sought by young U.S. graduates. This opposition is multiracial, cross-sex, non-racist, class-based, bipartisan, rational, persistent, and recognizes the solidarity Americans owe to each other.
The voter opposition to elite-backed economic migration coexists with support for legal immigrants and some sympathy for illegal migrants. But only a minority of Americans — mostly leftists — embrace the many skewed polls and articles pushing the 1950’s corporate “Nation of Immigrants” claim.
The deep public opposition to labor migration is built on the widespread recognition that legal and illegal migration moves money away from most Americans’ pocketbooks and families. Migration moves money from employees to employers, from families to investors, from young to old, from children to their parents, from homebuyers to investors, from technology to stoop labor, from red states to blue states, and from the central states to the coastal states such as New York.
GW Bush revives his ‘Any Willing Worker’ plan to eliminate Americans’ right to their national labor market. The Bush & Koch plan matches Zuckerberg’s visa-worker plan in Biden’s progressive amnesty.

Joe Biden’s Open Border Policies Suborn Criminality: “It’s OK: Come on In!”
We hear scan reports from today’s media regarding crimes committed by illegals. Why is that? It feeds into the leftist agenda of Open Borders.
It is unquestionable that over the last year, crime in the U.S. has increased dramatically. It is also factual to say that illegal aliens have been and are committing many of those crimes. Of course, the FBI/DOJ do not release reports which break down the demographics by the citizenship of the perpetrators of serious crimes. Why is that? Those numbers don’t prop up the leftist plan to pack the nation with a “new” class of Americans and a plan that creates permanent Democrat Party voters.
Let’s take a peek at just one small segment of illegal alien criminality with a snapshot of the state of Texas.
According to an analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.
The report describes an alien crime wave of staggering proportions exacerbated by federal officials unwilling to enforce immigration laws.
The Texas DPS report says well over 100,000 individual criminal aliens have been booked into Texas jails:
From October 2008 to April 2014, Texas identified a total 177,588 unique criminal alien defendants booked into Texas county jails. These individuals have been identified through the Secure Communities initiative, in which Texas has participated since October 2008.
There are almost certainly more criminal aliens who haven’t been identified as aliens. The 177,588 criminal aliens identified by Texas through the Secure Communities initiative only can tag criminal aliens who had already been fingerprinted. Arrests of illegal aliens who have not been fingerprinted before arrest are not included in these arrests numbers derived from the Secure Communities initiative.
That means that the already stratospheric aggregate crime totals would be even higher if crimes by many illegal aliens who are not in the fingerprint database were included.
The Secure Communities initiative is an information-sharing program between the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice. Presumably, both departments would have data on the number of fingerprint searches conducted that revealed a criminal act involved an alien.
Texas has been ground zero in illegal alien crossings into the United States. The Texas DPS report shows that in the Rio Grande Valley, 154,453 illegal aliens were apprehended in 2013.
Other Texas sectors saw approximately 86,000 illegal aliens apprehended. All other sectors combined on the southern border only saw approximately 170,000 illegal alien apprehensions in the same time period. The Obama/Biden administration released a sizable portion of the illegal aliens captured.
The criminal aliens identified by the Texas Department of Public Safety have been responsible for the most heinous types of crimes — and in astonishing numbers. From the Texas DPS report:
A review of these 177,588 defendants shows that they are responsible for at least 611,234 individual criminal charges over their criminal careers, including 2,993 homicides and 7,695 sexual assaults.
Arizona Illegal Alien Crimes Double The Number by Legals
The crime rate among illegal immigrants in Arizona is twice that of other residents, then-U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in 2018, citing a report based on conviction data.
From the Crime Prevention Research Center, the report used a previously untapped set of data from Arizona that detailed criminal convictions and found that illegal immigrants between 15 and 35 are less than 3 percent of the state’s population, but nearly 8 percent of its prison population. And the crimes they were convicted of were, on the whole, more serious.
Among nearly 4,000 first- and second-degree murder convictions, undocumented immigrants accounted for nearly 13 percent — significantly higher than their percentage of the population. Legal immigrants, by contrast, were less than 1 percent of convicts. Native-born made up the rest.
Undocumented immigrants also accounted for five times the rate of convictions for money laundering and kidnapping and were three times more likely to be convicted of drive-by shootings.
In the report, the crime rates of the undocumented who were ages 18 to 35 were significant, given the ongoing debate over legalizing illegal immigrant “Dreamers.” He said the Arizona data showed that the population had crime rates 250 percent higher than their share of the population would have predicted.
“They’re more likely to be convicted of sexual assault, robbery, and driving under the influence. They’re more than twice as likely to be convicted of murder.”
New Mexico and California certainly have massive numbers of crimes committed by illegals. Still, it should come as no surprise that neither has published similar data as have Texas and Arizona documenting those numbers.
Looking at the federal-only criminal arrests of illegals, more than 90% of illegal immigrants arrested by federal agents in the United States in 2019 had criminal convictions or pending criminal charges, including 56,000 assaults and thousands of sex crimes, robberies, homicides, and kidnappings. Many had “extensive criminal histories with multiple convictions,” according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) year-end report. The 123,128 illegal aliens arrested by the agency’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in 2019 had 489,063 criminal convictions and pending charges, representing an average of four crimes per alien, highlighting the “recidivist nature” of the arrested aliens, the agency writes, noting that sanctuary cities nationwide greatly impeded its public safety efforts.
How does ANY elected official at the state or federal level ignore their oaths of office in allowing this massive lawlessness to be perpetrated on the citizens of the U.S.?
With this President, there’s NO end in sight. It is not surprising to hear the stories coming from some Texans of a serious move to “take matters into their own hands” and stop illegal aliens from entering their state.
President Biden has filled his administration with unelected appointees who are outwardly anti-border sycophants who have actually pledged to flood the nation with illegals.
The cost of this to the citizens of the U.S. is incalculable. Including the expense of law enforcement at local, state, and federal levels, the judiciary, medical, education, and housing, estimates are as high as $1 trillion a year! Of course, that cost pales when considering the cost of the lives lost at the hands of these criminals.
Why is President Biden Purposely Flooding the Nation with Illegal Aliens?
What is this all about? Ignore the false cries of care and affection for those less fortunate than native Americans. It’s been proven over and over that it is nothing more than a talking point. If the options for the correct answer are examined, one can quickly conclude only one possible purpose: to salvage the dying Democrat Party membership with illegals who will give Democrats permanent legislative power.
I know that “being here” does not automatically “voting here.” Don’t raise that objection! We all have witnessed firsthand that Democrat Party leadership does NOT need legal status for voters. Ballot harvesting takes care of that problem! Anyway, they make no bones about their intentions: give EVERY illegal a path to full citizenship. THAT will give them a voting base that will permanently be committed to the party that gave them EVERYTHING.
